What people are saying
My family and I had breakfast at The Raft this morning and I wanted to say 'Thank You' to the staff including the chefs for the service and great food! Blessings to you all!!
Been there several times, fast service and the food has been amazing. if you're like me and just like good old faves, try their mince on toast, it was yummy.
One of my favorite meeting places! Super convenient, abundant parking and friendly staff! They always remember my name and it makes me wonder how they do that with all the different customers coming through!
Great place for coffee and a bite, wide range of muffins and the date scone I had was amazing. The service was friendly and quick and the place was very clean.
I've been to The Raft several times and have always had a good experience. Great & friendly staff. Always lovely food, and great drinks.

The Raft has been our local since they opened several years back, we enjoy the consistency of great coffees, friendly service and more often than not promptness, unless there is a house full then this is to be expected. Keep doing what you're doing gang, you rock!
Yummm food. Nice cold beer. Exactly what was needed at the time. If I lived closer I would visit more often.
Thank you for hosting our AGM last night, the venue was perfect for us. Service was good and the desrts/sweets were yummy. Thanks again, Tauriko Playcentre.
Amazing Staff, Amazing Food, Great service all around. Now to only get a job there. Keep up the great service guys!
Perfect homemade pizza bases for the Rosemary & Parmesan Pizza Bread, lightly battered, non-greasy chips and lovely coffee!
Very knowledgeable and very friendly, pleasant and presentable staff. With Covid at the moment, asked about the vaccine pass and scanned this for both myself and my husband. Not many places have done this. Awesome to see. Keep it up. Food was beautifully displayed and was so fresh. Had not spent time under the heat lamps at all. Keep it up.
Great to see friendly respectful staff. Enjoyed the meal at The Raft with my business colleagues.
For quite some time now, I've been having my lunch at The Raft on a regular basis. I must say that I'm very impressed with the food, my favorite is the Eggs Bacon Benedict, the bacon is always nice and tender, not overcooked. And The Raft is supporting the environment and healthier choices by using free-range eggs. Oh...and the coffee is great!
Been going there for several years and never had a problem with either quality of food or service provided.
Great service and glorious food. I burnt my tongue on the pasta I ordered, it was amazeballs but it was so so hot and huuggeee serving. Had to get a doggy bag to take home. Clean toilets and lovely setting.
